The snotty review from 'HeatSeekers5' pretty much sums up the attitudes of many guests in this hotel. There are graveyards that have more atmosphere than the pool area however, this does not reflect the hotel in general and merely reflects the type of snobbish people in the 'very mature' age group that this hotel attracts. Without our daily 'entertainment' it would have been a very dull 2 weeks poolside and the majority of guests we're glad that there was sign of life!!
The lack of atmosphere in the pool and bar area is literally the only negative of this hotel. The rooms are spacious, nicely decorated and spotlessly cleaned every day, with lovely views onto the sea, pool and surrounding areas. The hotel is self is very traditional and has beautiful sun terraces looking onto the beach and albuferia.
The food is great with a huge variety at dinner time, not so much at breakfast but perfectly fine and what you would expect (fruit, yogurts, fresh bread, full English, cereal, continental, tea, coffee, juice).
The staff within this hotel are brilliant very helpful and can't do enough for you, the restaurant staff in particular!! The entertainment in the hotel was okay, nothing outstanding but albuferia itself is great for all sorts of entertainment so you will never be bored.
The walk to the beach and old town is not as bad as most reviews make out. Unless you have mobility difficulties then the walk should be fine and although it's steep there is regular bars, cafe and shops on route to stop and have a breather! Taxis from the hotel to the town center are only around €5.
The hotel has free wifi, aircon and the safe is really good value.
Overall the hotel was brilliant and we would definitely stay there again! Who knows, we may be employed as poolside entertainment so our 'audience' can watch us daily!!
